Farewell to you my love, I'm closing my eyes.
You'll let go this cold, cold hand in time.
This chain around your neck must carry my stone.
So I can feel your heart beat against my own.
This veil will hide my voice from you and I'm
Not sure how I'll talk to you but
Know while you lie sleeping I'll be speaking my truths.

Be near me always, I don't know where I'll go but
I will tell you my stories.
On this ocean I'm rolling a wave away from you but
We will roll into each other some day.
For a ripple on the water I'll pray.

You will lose my face, even closing your eyes.
I have gone from skin to earth to tree against the sky.
The storms may harm our blossom.
We call for the sun.
And though the rain still pours, we know she'll come in
good time.

Oh silver lining you are hard to see,
When her face it fades away from me.
But I know while she lies sleeping
We are dreaming the same dreams.

For she is near me always telling me where to go.
She listens to my stories.
She has this funny notion that tears the tears from me but
I will dry her pretty eyes some day.
For a ripple on the water I'll pray.

And I know that I will find her by the tremors left
behind her,
For with each ripple on the water
She prays.

    My InterpretationThe narrator is dead and she's wondering how her lover will cope without her, how they'll communicate. This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, so excited that I'll get to hear Rachel sing it live in just a couple of days time.

    Song MeaningI stumbled across this tune on BBC. She sang it with a live audience; a brilliant performance and recording: much better than the Youtube version.
    It is a haunting song and mantra-like tune.
    I love the use of the idea that a wave can express a person.
    To me, as an engineer, who enjoys concepts, it suggests the duality of particles and Heisenberg and quantum theory. If light can be a photon particle then why can't a soul be a wave. Beautiful.
    Maybe consciousness is just a vibration of the gravitational matrix or some other web. Meanwhile: Farewell to you my love......
